Katrina Victims Have to Pay Back Grants

The Katrina debacle continues to torment the hurricane survivors and stain the tarnished legacy of the Bush administration. It seems that homeowners given grants are being told that they were given too much and have to repay the overages.

The bid invitation said: “The average amount to be collected is estimated to be approximately $35,000 but in some cases may be as high as $100,000 to $150,000.”

This is totally outrageous due to the fact that it took the government way too long to get aid to these people and now they are adding insult to injury with trying to recoup money from these families who are still not back to normalcy. Tragic indeed.

Full hogwash here..
